Overhauled property with prestigious address is now the antithesis of grandma chic

Approaching this traditional home of white brick on prestigious Habersham Road, one might expect to find a coterie of regal Buckhead society ladies gathered inside having tea.

Not hardly.

Set atop a hill, on a deep lot near Atlanta History Center, this renovation project by Kay Douglass Interiors marries classic elements like elaborate molding and chunky stonework with the spartan restraint of a contemporary art museum.

Listed this week by Ansley Atlanta Real Estate for $3.25 million, the residence spans more than 5,600 square feet with one roomy living space after the next, from the whitewashed formal living room to the gorgeous loggia around back.

Splashy artwork and the retained, painted moldings begin upon entry.

The renovation, described in the listing as thoughtful, was complete across virtually every space, although the overall room count (four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms) might smack as slight for some upper-crust buyers.

One thing the property doesn’t offer is covered parking (a rarity at this price, obviously), although the parking pad does fit at least four vehicles.

Records indicate the home last traded in 2014 for just shy of $2 million—and that it’d previously belonged to high-profile sports agent Pat Dye Jr., who offloaded his more recent Buckhead spread a year ago for $4 million even.
